To be honest I'd like a definitive answer here.

Since I'm storing a large tree of folders with other content on the same disk
it's a different case to dedicating a single disk to store just the database.
All of my machines are idle for a large part of the day. Just need speed to get
a fast response when several enquiries come in at once, so I've not had to
worry. If I start getting to a point where database access is a problem I'd
probably simply move the database to it's own Linux box and run the database on
it's own disk, at which point I'll be asking the same question :)
